Peoplo In Vicinity Kejolco Over Cnp--turo Through Her Clever Work Mnn Returned to Fnrvlcw That Afternoon. Alonzo Nicholas, a patient in the Criminal Insane Hospital located at Farview, got away from his keepers there Tuesday afternoon shortly af ter one o'clock hut after a few hours of liberty he was found in the vicinity of Waymart. To Miss Alice Dersheimer, opera tor of the Bell telephone at Canaan Corners, is duo tho credit for captur ing the negro who escaped from the Criminal Insane Hospital at Farview Tuesday evening. Miss Dersheimer, In an interview with tho Citizen, stated that she received word that Nicholas had escaped about 20 min utes after he was missed from the grounds where he had been working. "I gave a general alarm on the line, reaching all the people I could on tho main road and also cross roads that tho man was on his way toward South Canaan. Men rushed out of their homes and the escaped man was caught by Dr. McCafferty and David Gildea near Cease Bros, on the road toward Philip Relning's in Cherry Ridge township. "The man was walking very fast as ho passed the different houses that I called up to ascertain his move ment. Miss Dersheimer's keen forsight and clever work certainly led to the capture of the escaped man, who, had he not been captured, might sooner or later have caused much trouble and sorrow. The young lady telephone operator deserves much credit for her resourceful tactics, for had the escaped man not been taken into custody, people everyf whore in the vicinity would have been terror-stricken and .have passed sieepiess nignts. Alonzo Nichols had been commit ted to the hospital at Farview, from Franklin county. Ho was not vio lently insane and had been engaged in helping grade the lawn around the institution that afternoon. When the guard's back was turned he made his escape into the woods. A thor ough search was at once instigated and resulted in the man's capture oerore many hours. The news that one of the inmates of the criminal insane hospital had escaped, for a time put terror into tho minds of residents of that vi cinity, and many did not venture from their homes until they heard of the man's capture.

Jack said since 1S77 he has taken out of Pike county 7,000 rattle snakes. "It's an easy matter to catch a rattlesnake All you do is just catch him. I have been bitten several times by them but only once was given up by tho doctors as being beyond hopes of living. I was sick ten days but was not as sick perhaps as a person might have been had ho taken no means of extracting tho poison. I receive from 52.50 to $3.00 for skins that I tan. They are used in making purses and belts. I have imiuu largo quantities or rattlesnake oil, but only sold one bottle, having given hundreds of bottles away. The oil is used for ear trouble.

GOVERNOR JOHNSON SAYS HE WILL SIGN LAND BILL GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA TELEGRAPHS ADMINISTRA TION OF HIS INTENTION. Also Gives His Reasons Declnrcs That California Docs More Thnn the Existing Treaty Requires. iSacramentq, Cal., May 14. Ex pressing his determination to sign the alien land bill, recently passed by tho legislature, Governor Hiram W. Johnson, of California, today telegraphed to Secretary of State Bryan, a long explanation of the ac tion taken by tho legislature. The message was In answer to tho re quest telegraphed to the governor by Secretary Bryan at tho direction of President Wilson that the bill be vetoed. Tho governor's message in part follows: "Honorable Wm. J. Bryan, Secretary of State, Washington. "Your very courteous telegram relating to the alien land bill reach ed me late Sunday night. I take it from our conversations and your request made to me to withhold ex ecutive action until opportunity was accorded for the presentations from tho federal government, that your message embodies what It was your wish, and tho wish of the president to say to us before final action. "In this response it is my design most respectfully to present the situ ation from our standpoint and the views that actuated our legislature in passing the bill and that impel me to sanction it. Problem Little Understood. "For many years a very grave problem, little understood In the East, has confronted California; a problem the seriousness of which has been recognized by statements in our nation, and has been viewed with apprehension by tho people of this stato. When tho present Con stitution of California was adopted more than thirty years ago, it con tained tho following declaration: 'The presence of foreigners ineligible to become citizens of the United States is declared to bo dangerous to tho well being of tho state, and the legislature shall discourage their immigration by all means with in its power.' "Of late years our problem from another angle has become acute, and the agitation has been continuous in the last decade in reference to our agricultural lands until finally afllr mativo action in an attempted solu tion became imperative. This at tempted solution is found in tho ac tion of our legislature in the passage of the alien land bill. In this enact ment we have kept ever in mind our national good faith as evidenced by existing treaties, and our desire and anxiety have been to act only in such fashion as would commend us to our sister states and would justify us to our fellow countrymen."

MORE CONCERNING MEETING OF IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY MISS PETERSEN SPOKE OF THE GOOD WORK DONE DURING . RECENT CLEAN-UP WEEK. Miss Lyda Stokes Adams, Suffrage Lender to bo In Honesdale May 20 AV1I1 Speak in High School Officers Elected. After tho reading of the reports by the Secretary and Treasurer, in tho annual meeting of the Hones dale Improvement Society on Mon day afternoon, an account of which appeared In tho last issue of The Citizen, Miss Caroline Petersen, the president, made a few remarks in re gard to Clean-Up Week. Sho said that although much good had been done, and most of tho peoplo had done considerable along tliat line, still there is much more to ba ac complished. Some merchants are known to sweep tho dirt from their stores onto tho street and into the gutter. There aro still many back yards that need attention. The press did much to help during Clean-Up Week, and tho mayor issued a pro clamation which was published in tho three county papers which was also helpful. She spoke of the great work which is being dono in New York where they have enlisted the help of many of the city's most influential and wealthy women, it has been noted that considerable garbage and refuse has been dumped on the different river banks, and that the banks of the river along tho cemoterles are also being filled in with ashes and all kinds of rubbish. Tho last place, however, is outside of the jurisdiction of this society, but should also be given attention. Many benches have been broken In the different parks owing to the roughness and carelessness of the boys. The gavel used by tho president in calling the meeting to order is a gift of Mrs. S. E. Jenkins, and bears this inscription, "H. I. A., March, 1912." It is of red cedar and was procured by Mrs. Jenkins at Jef ferson Davis' last homo at Biloxi, Miss., now used as a home ,for old soldiers. The following letter received from Mrs. Thomas J. Ham, formerly of this place, was read 'by the presi dent: " I read with much pleasure tho doings of the Improvement associa tion at the monthly gathering. I'll allow that I didn't feel quite at home in the High school building, my mind clings to tho town hall. It was at that objective point I, as secretary for 1G years, issued my order for the assembling of the 'Knights of the Round Table.' I should miss many loved faces were I permitted once more to be ono of you'; they have gone from us, forever passed to fair er regions. " I beg of you to keep my memory green. Ah, well, gone are all those days, but the memory of them Is sjtill cherished as something precious. " It was a good idea replacing tho willows on tho river bank, sort of taking thought of the morrow and a stick in time does mean much for the future beauty of Honesdale. I hope the time is not far distant when you can locate the Lion's head, Miss Brownscombo's gift. I have always placed It at the Stato bridge. Re member I am a life member by tho united kindness of my many lang syne friends of tho Improvement as sociation. " No doubt you are all awaiting the paving of Front street, so long in chancery." Mrs. Alma J. G. Dix was next presented. She said she had receiv ed a letter from Miss Lyda Stokes Adams, a suffrage leader of much prominence. Miss Adams, who will be on her way from Montrose to Mil ford, will bo in Honesdale on Tues day evening next, May 20.

Rockwell for secretary, in place of Miss Jennlo Ball, who resigned, and who has held that office since 1907, and Miss Jennie Lee was appointed to take charge of the Children's Auxllinry, Mrs. Harry Oday who has had charge of that work for a number of years having resigned.

Mrs. AA'lngcrter, of Rcnovn, Again Disappointed Says Sho Wns Divorced Tliree Times More Evidence Needed. The habeas corpus proceedings started last March by Mrs. Mary Wingerter, of Renova, Pa., for the recovery of her daughter, Ethel May Shields, aged sixteen, whom she claimed was being Illegally de tained by William Myers, a resident of Poyntelle, was brought up again Monday afternoon, before Judge Searle. The daughter is now in tho homo of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Smith at Rock Lake and Myers claimed that the child had been with him for six years before the mother made a claim on her. A let ter from the Chief of Police of Re nova, which was sent voluntarily, stated that- Mrs. Wingerter, was a bad woman. In the evidence she gave Monday afternoon, Mrs. Win gerter materially disagreed with the testimony she gave at tho first hear ing, when she said that her last hus band had been killed. She stated Monday that she had been divorced three times. Sho was married to Shields, Lewis and Wingerter, re spectively, and was divorced" from each, and in the latter case she ad mitted that Wingerter had obtained tho divorce on the grounds of adul tery. No decision was made in the case and more evidence will be tak en in the case.
